to get the trade deficit down which means getting the dollar down. we're shipping $5 billion worth of demand overseas, money earned here, spent in europe, china, demand, whatever. it is very hard to fill that gap. we did that in the last decade with the housing bubble. that is not a really good way to go. i would put the emphasis down to get the trade deficit close closer to balance. liz: you think the weaker dollar is better. exports looked not certainly so bad. exports were up. people are buying our good overseas. >> well, it was some improvement but we actually revised down the previous numbers, previous month ace numbers. so it wasn't much of an improvement. we have a ways to go. we have a deficit of 500 billion. maybe we're moving in the right direction but if so, very slowly. we have to pick up that pace. liz: precursor to the government's jobs number report, adp, came out yesterday. look better than expected, 218,000 jobs created what are you expecting from the labor department tomorrow? >> i will be a pessimist, 141, 50. last month was strong numbers. strong growth in retai

, and that deficit can compound itself over time. and finally, rising inequality and declining mobility are bad for our democracy. ordinary folks can't write massive campaign checks or hire high- priced lobbyists and lawyers to secure policies that tilt the playing field in their favor at everyone else's expense. and so people get the bad taste that the system is rigged, and that increases cynicism and polarization, and it decreases the political participation that is a requisite part of our system of self-government. so this is an issue that we have to tackle head on. and if, in fact, the majority of americans agree that our number- one priority is to restore opportunity and broad-based growth for all americans, the question is, why has washington consistently failed to act? and i think a big reason is the myths that have developed around the issue of inequality. first, there is the myth that this is a problem restricted to a small share of predominantly minority poor -- that this isn't a broad-based problem, this is a black problem or a hispanic problem or a native american problem. now, it's

administrations have danced around the mission of our infrastructure deficit. for all the attention to the various fiscal cliffs, the looming infrastructure deficit is every bit as critical. for two centuries, infrastructure was a bipartisan issue, from lincoln with the transcontinental railroad to democrats and republicans coming together to launch the interstate freeway system, signed into law by president eisenhower, subsequent roads, transit and water investments helped fuel our economy and tie the nation together. more recently, the failure to address long-term funding has also been bipartisan. the bush administration ignored strong recommendations from their own private sector experts that they impaneled to give advice. although the obama administration did request and employ some modest funding in the recovery act and has proposed an infrastructure bank and talked extensively and i think sincerely about the need for investment, what has been lacking has been a specific concrete proposal from either party to address infrastructure financing in america. while the political maneuvering has sec
